Plight of Hindus – A documentary on the life of Hindu refugees from Pakistan
‘The Human Boundaries,
‘ a 35-minute documentary film by Rahil Riji Nair on the life of the Hindu refugees from Pakistan. The film is based on the plight of a group of 151 Hindu refugees from Pakistan, who are now sheltered in a refugee camp in the outskirts of New Delhi. They entered India on September, 2011, with a one month tourist visa. They came to take refuge from the various religious persecutions they had to face in Pakistan. The group, which has a majority of children and women, are now sheltered in a camp on the outskirts of New Delhi. But now their visa has expired and they are facing deportation. Various organisations are fighting for the basic human rights of these people at the political and judicial level. Their story is a grim reminder of all those lives caught up in no man’s land. The film was shot in a highly restricted and sensitive environment inside the refugee camp in a short span of three days with the use of minimal filming equipments. This documentary traces the difficulties they had to face in Pakistan, their life inside the camp and their hopes for tomorrow.
